HBO to air Zathura: A Space Adventure

MUMBAI: It’s time for sci-fi thrillers. HBO in its weekend slot will be airing Zathura: A Space Adventure on 7 July at 9 pm. The film stars Josh Hutcherson, Tim Robbins and Kristen Stewart and is directed by Jon Favreau.

A pair of bickering brothers must put aside their differences if they must survive and save their elder sister as well, when the board game they are playing comes alive and flings them, together with their house and elder sister into outer space.

The boys soon realize that there is only one way to get back to Earth- keep playing to finish the game. But at every turn they make, they face even harder challenges including a murderous robot, an explosive meteor shower and lizard-like aliens.
